This is bopping music....

I like Begin the Beguine, particularly the Vic Damone version.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xqVHWYz0bcU

I was jiving at a party last week.  Not to that standard though.

I can still jive a bit.. But I get a bit dizzy on the turns..
Don't think of a caterpillar dying..Think of a butterfly living.

the Beguine is a latin rhythm but other than 'Begin The Beguine'
i cant think of another piece of music using that rhythm...

Interesting thought, Crabby. I've heard the rhythm used in other things but none specifically come to mind.
 Google tells me that 'Beka' or Begua is used in patois to describe the female figure so I guess that it's a rhythm for seduction.
